Life is an absolute crazy place. The many events that take place in our live cannot be capture in 1 single photo or video. Each moment is unique, intense, complicated, and full of unexplainable emotions. Being able to be apart of one of life's most amazing events is something that not even photos can fully express. Most of our lives revolve around memories that come and go. The only things we have to look back on these fading memories are the moments captures through a camera.
Witnessing life coming into this world is something that I have only had the pleasure to see and not experience myself. Watching a mother and her team supporting her to bring life into the world was one of the greatest events I had the pleasure to be apart of. I was given the opportunity to document the entire 19 hours of labor for a family in Glendale, Arizona.
My biggest fears for this shoot were incredible high. Would I forget to bring extra batteries? Would the doctors allow me to take the photos? Would I miss the big finally? WOuld something medically go wrong with mom or the baby? SO many things went through my head but the entire time I was documenting, I only thought about 1 thing. Capture the moments that will make the memories of this day last forever.
Everything went perfect. Mom and baby did such a great job and the images we were able to capture really expresses the struggles, pain, and joy of a pregnant to delivery.
